Texas Tech will wear throwback jerseys for a Sept. 13 home game againstArkansasthat
Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury described as “Zach Thomas era,” meaning a look from the mid-1990s.
“It’ll be a good look,” Kingbury said. “They’ve got kind of a new spin on them, but it’s a traditional throwback look.”
Tech wore both scarlet tops and black tops when Thomas played from 1992-95. Kingsbury said the throwbacks will be black.
During Kingsbury’s three full seasons as a Tech starting quarterback (2000-02) and his first year as head coach (2013), the Red Raiders wore primarily black jerseys at home and never red.
Asked if black tops are his preference, Kingsbury said, “No, no. Just the way it felt in year one. Going forward, we’ll see if we can mix some red in there at some point.”
